Kidney Flushing

The kidneys are very delicate organs. Dehydration, poor diet, weak digestion, stress and irregular lifestyle lead to the congestion of the kidneys. The main causes of congestion are kidney stones but most of these are too small to be detected through ultrasound or x-ray. Although they do not cause too much trouble when small, when they grow bigger they can really damage the kidneys. It is a good idea to illuminate them before they get to this stage. If you are already liver flushing, it is important to kidney flush every three or four liver flushes.

To see if you have any sand or stones in your kidneys, pull the skin under your eyes to the side towards your cheekbones. If you see irregular bumps, protrusions, discolouration of the skin or red/white pimples you have probably got some small kidney stones.

A kidney flush is much easier than a liver flush. It involves a tea which you sip over the day for 20 days. If you have already had kidney stones, do this flush every six weeks or so, to be sure you are rid of any remnants. According to Andreas Moritz’s book, to make it you will need the following herbs:

1oz of MarjoramCat’s Claw*

2oz of Fennel Seed, Chicory Herb, Uva Ursi, Hydrangea Root, Gravel Root, Marshmallow Root & Golden Rod Herb

For those of you looking for these herbs in London, I found most of these at Whole Foods in Brixton, except for Hydrangea Root & Gravel Root which I found at Neal’s Yard in Covent Garden. I had to get Chicory Herb on Amazon as it was really difficult to source elsewhere.

Use the quantity indicated for the above herbs and mix them together well and store in an airtight container. Soak three tablespoons of the  mixture in two cups of water (about 250ml) overnight. In the morning, put these into a pan and bring to the boil. Strain and sip over the course of the day, waiting an hour after eating before doing so. It is recommended this tea be drank in about six to eight portions. You should drink more water than usual during the 20 days you kidney flush.

*Moritz also says you need 1oz of Comfrey Root, but I have read that this is a very dangerous herb and not at all recommended for human consumption, it can be fatale…so I would avoid this!
